    • If you have a low budget. Consider a g shock. You can't go wrong with any of Casio watches.
    • I'm taking more and more interest in what other people are wearing.  As mentioned though, it is hard not to stare too long and most of that I see is not that great. A fellow guest at a BBQ last weekend did have a very nice JLC Reverso though; we had a nice half hour or so chat about it and our respective collections. J
    • After a few trials and tribulations with deliveries I was finally able to pick this up from my PO depot earlier today and inside... Nicely padded and protected, so everything inside should be fine :-) And it's an Omega! Outer box is fine, but the inner box shown clear signs of its age.  That's ok with me though, a bit of character never did anyone any serious harm. Inside I got the full bunch of booklets and warranty card.  All numbers seem to marry up so I'm happy with its authenticity. The watch itself is the Seamaster, sword hands, 36mm, quartz, and blue dial.  I was really town between the black and blue versions, but something about the heavy look of the bezel on the black version made me swing towards this one.  And the price too, this one was only a flickmover the cost of a new CW Trident C60 auto. Also, this is different enough from my other regular watches to give me a bit more variety in the collection.   Happy days :-) It has, of course, been used and there are a few marks on the bezel and clasp.  However, these are very light indeed and normally only noticeable if you catch them in the light just right. For what I'm after this does not bother me.  This won't be a beater, nor even my daily wear, but it will get used if I need something fast so it needs to go with everything. Hands, dial, crystal all perfect. On the wrist it fits well.  I have had to pop another one and a half links out to get it sized to my skinny wrist, but it seems comfortable enough. Of course, me being me, I rarely keep a bracelet on for long.  So, a few NATOs were ordered at the same time and I have dug out a couple of 18mm ColaReb leather straps just to be in the safe side.  I think a smart, black leather Hirsch might be needed to complete the set too? Her Ladyship and I are off to the seaside tomorrow and I think this will definitely be coming with me.  It will be, after all, Quartz Wednesday... On Thursday I have an appointment booked at my local jeweller to get it checked over and authenticity confirmed and I might discuss a new battery and re-seal, just for peace of mind. J
    • Ever since I became a bit of a WIS I started to pay attention to what people are wearing on their wrist. But rarely do I ever spot something interesting here in Romania. People can't afford the luxury of a good quality watch, so to speak. I once spotted a man in his 60s that had what looked like a vintage panda-style chronograph and I was shocked. I wanted to follow him around but I'm not that weird. No idea if it was genuine or some cheap wannabe modern iteration.
